Riverside DA just says no to prosecuting medical marijuana patients

Good news from Riverside, CA.
(CBS) RIVERSIDE, Calif. Riverside County District Attorney Grover Trask won't prosecute people who use marijuana in accordance with state law,even though he supports the federal banning of the drug.

County supervisors voted to prohibit marijuana dispensaries and growing cooperatives in unincorporated areas. Prior to the decision, Trask issued a 10-page report supporting the ban, saying he believes federal law "clearly and unequivocally states that all marijuana related activities are illegal."

Trask said he never intended to prosecute patients.

I find his position a little confusing, but good for him for refusing to prosecute sick people.
